Anne and I have been saving up for our 40th anniversary trip to Paris and Bordeaux for a while.
It’s not cheap. In Paris they charge you to pee.
So I was unhappy to read that Donald Trump claims protesters at his rallies were getting $1500 from the Democratic National Committee.
$1500 is equal to €1650 right now. It would have come in handy. At Paris prices we could have bought an extra bottle of wine for dinner.
Okay. Things aren’t that expensive.
I was at the first Trump protest in Chicago last Spring. Along with about 10,000 others.
First of all, I didn’t get $1500. I was free. So was Anne.
Second of all, I wouldn’t give to or take $1500 from the Democratic National Committee.
Not at any price.
Most of the rest of the crowd were Bernie supporters and based on what I have been reading in WikiLeaks, I doubt the DNC was pumping much money into that bunch.
